Nicole and Ryan
how we met
We met in our peer leadership class during our senior year at Howell High School. We started dating about a year after we graduated college.
how they asked
We drove to Belmar Beach where Nicole thought we were taking anniversary pictures for my cousin, and then getting Rum Buckets after. When we walked onto the beach I stopped walking when we got near the photographer. I admit that the whole story was made up, got down on one knee, and told Nicole “there’s no one else I want to live this life with, will you marry me?”. She thankfully said yes and loves the ring. Nicole’s best friend and two of her cousins were hiding on the beach and joined us right after I asked her. We went back to Nicole’s parent’s house surrounded by our friends and family and had an amazing night we’ll never forget.
